Lung cancer: Immunosurveillance, immunoediting or immunoepigenetics?
Abstract
Lung cancer is amongst the most frequent and malignant of neoplasms. Its mortality rates place it first of all types of cancer with more than 1.000.000 deaths annually worldwide. It is characterized by a series of biological and clinical features that position it in the epicenter of current research efforts. To this end, it is noted that this cancer responds poorly to various immunotherapeutic interventions as opposed to other malignancies.
